Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: UTCengOwl on 03-12-2011

An entirely new creation from organic 2-row, organic Crystal 60 and Carafa III, a huskless black malt that gives this beer it’s black color with notes of coffee and chicory without any tannic bitterness. The hop additions are many and generous, featuring Apollo, Horizon, and Nugget, clocking the beer in at 70 IBU. Over 11 pounds per batch of Nugget hops are added directly to the fermenter yielding a resiny herbal and spicy aroma. A hybrid style for dark beer fans who love hops.

This appears a dark cola color with a thin layer of foam. It has a light hop aroma, present but not dominant, reminiscent of grapefruit citrus zest. There’s a big, upfront bitterness which comes off as a welcome surprise as well as an upfront roast which dies down into a long malt finish. The hops are grassy and grapefruity, and there’s enough dark roast notes as a contrast. Simply delicious.
